The potential of near-infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) for determining the chemical composition of heterogeneous, botanically complex semi-natural grassland herbage was assessed. Samples were collected over four consecutive years at different maturation stages and were analysed by chemical and NIRS procedures for crude protein, neutral detergent fibre (NDF), acid detergent fibre (ADF), acid detergent lignin and cellulose. A subset of samples was selected on the basis of spectral… CONTINUE READING
